Albany police have now identified the man found shot to death on Clinton Street on Sunday afternoon.
Police say two men approached Damien Sanders, and challenged him to a fight.
Sanders evidently told them he didn't want to, but the men pulled him from the car he was in, and began beating him.
Sanders pulled a knife, and one of the two men shot him to death.
Sanders had just been released from prison after doing a 20 year sentence for manslaughter.
His death is Albany's second homicide of the year.
No suspects in the case so far.
